Don't forget to visit one of Boston's most charming historic neighborhoods. The crooked streets, gas lamps and old houses make its charm.
Among the most interesting sights that you can visit here are e.g. the Massachusetts State House, the Nichols House Museum or the Boston African-American National Historic Site. There are also many restaurants and cafés in case you get hungry.
The name of the neighbourhood refers to an actual beacon that used to be located here. In case of an attack on the city, it was lit up so the citizens would be warned.
